Experimental Validation of Common-Mode Filtering Performances of Planar Electromagnetic Band-gap Structures

An experimental validation of an electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) based common mode filter is given in this article. The proposed layout technique is based on planar EBG structures altered by removing the connecting bridges between adjacent patches. The patches are properly dimensioned for ensuring the presence of frequency notches at the frequencies that should be filtered in the common-mode transfer function. The notch frequency is associated with the first resonant mode of the patch.
